Theatre complex in Moscow where concerts, opera, ballet, and dramatic works are presented.

The institution (whose name means "Large") dates back to 1776, when Catherine II licensed a company to give all theatrical performances in Moscow; its scope soon expanded to include opera and dance as well as drama. The original complex was built in 1825; it was rebuilt after a fire in 1853. The performing companies have changed over time, but the institution and the rebuilt edifice have survived.
